As another year comes to an end, what better time to look back at the days gone by and reflect on what’s happened over the past 12 months?
The fintech world is on fire.
So much has changed and developed in such a short space of time and we’re thoroughly excited to be a part of this wave of innovation offering disruptive technological solutions to investors – but what’s new and what have we been up to? Here’s our end of year roundup.
Fintech 2017: What a Whirlwind
Before we delve into the ins and outs of our company news, let’s just take a minute to appreciate the 2017 advances within the fintech industry. From the increased digitization of money (think online banking platforms and the latest buzz around cryptocurrencies) to improved algorithms and a surge of fintech mobile apps, the financial sector is undergoing a complete makeover – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Artificial Intelligence, robo-advisors and online trading all have their root in the technological age and as new innovations make their way into capital markets, the landscape will change forever.
Consumer behaviour is also evolving. Connected individuals expect new, innovative ideas and are therefore becoming increasingly demanding. There’s a need for speed and innovation which is forcing companies to get even more creative.
Thankfully, we now live in a world where technology and financial services can hold hands rather than fight one another and this provides the breeding ground for technological advances such as those TradeSocio focus on.
TradeSocio 2017 at a Glance
It’s clear that the financial industry is advancing rapidly and we’re not going to be left behind. We want to be at the forefront of new concepts and ideas, so here’s a deeper insight into what’s been achieved of late.
- Mutually beneficial partnerships
Our state-of-the-art platform, Alpha Suite, provides a new way for investors, money managers, brokers and business introducers to simplify the investment process. It makes investing in the financial markets more streamlined than ever before and throughout 2017, we’ve been working hard to showcase the benefits and develop new partnerships.
Since April 2017, TradeSocio has been partnering with the world’s leading brokers and financial services providers and in recent months has added JP Markets, Black Bull, Template FX, Anzo Capital, Dion Social and VVBuls to our increasing client list.
We have also partnered with some important names within the technology sector including Shift Forex, PrimeXM, MetaQuotes, IS Risk Analytics and ForexWare.
TradeSocio is naturally dedicated to moving the fintech industry forward and feedback to date from well-respected companies within the forex arena has been extremely encouraging. When asked why Shift Forex chose to partner with TradeSocio, for instance, COO Matthew Miller said:
“Shift Forex decided to partner with TradeSocio because we consistently receive requests from our existing clients and prospects for social trading and fund management technology” Mr Miller explained.
‘Their platforms are designed to be very user friendly while still maintaining a deep set of features that meet our clients’ needs. We’ve also found their executive team and support staff to be extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with, a critical component to the continued success of our shared clients” concluded Mr Miller.
Appreciation from our partners encourages us to push ourselves a little harder every day.
- Global promotion and the attendance of key events
With offices in Singapore, Cyprus, and India, TradeSocio has an international appeal and that’s something we’ve been keen to promote with our world tour of three continents and counting. Our international team has been determined to see out 2017 in style and has been doing the rounds at Finovate Asia in Hong Kong, Fintech in Nicosia, the Finance Magnates Summit in London, The Financial Expo in Moscow and The Money Fair Expo in Shanghai.
TradeSocio CTO Wael Salem commented on the experience, stating: “It’s been an incredible year for Tradesocio and we are really seeing all our hard work paying off. Brokers in particular have been extremely interested to see how Alpha Suite can increase their acquisitions and boost their retention. We’re really looking forward to seeing how things pan out in the New Year and beyond.”
TradeSocio 2018: What lies ahead?
The future is bright for 2018 – so watch this space. You can catch the TradeSocio team at the upcoming iFXEXPO Asia in Hong Kong in the New Year and with a tour of South Africa, the Middle East, Indonesia and Australia in the pipelines, global demand is expected to grow.
While travelling, TradeSocio will deliver seminars and hold private meetings with brokers and fund managers detailing the key elements of the Alpha Suite which includes: Alpha Investor, Alpha Funds, Business Introducer and Alpha Broker.
Here at TradeSocio, we’re also gearing up for a highly active 2018 that will see the launch of a new Alpha Suite platform which will include major releases like the Alpha Mobile Application, MT5 and the launch of the Global Funds platform.
Christmas and New Year Wishes from Tradesocio
With the New Year looming, the next 12 months look set to be extremely busy, but for now we’d like to wish all of our colleagues and partners celebrating Christmas a very happy, healthy and relaxed holiday season. We’d also like to extend our well-wishes into the New Year and look forward to many exciting collaborations in the days to come. We are excited to share our plans and are as eager as ever to set our goals into motion.
